Brian: 6 bearings is 3 per side. One for the big skeg against the prop; one for the intermediate bearing; and the 3rd.....for the stuffing box?? Maritime archaeology begins tomorrow...


I don't know if the shaft was replaced with the engines. I do know the skeg and intermediate bearing holders have plenty of room to take different thickness cutlass bearings. The new ones (naval brass shells) for the two skegs have to be shimmed down a little to fit, but these things come in different outer wall thicknesses (while remaining constant for shaft of) for just that purpose apparently.
